ICRA National Conference & AGM Saturday 10th February 2024

Royal Irish Yacht Club, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin

Following on from the success of the keynote speakers in previous years, ICRA is pleased to announce that the keynote speakers for this year’s conference will be:

On Friday 8th of September at the Monday.com ICRA National Championships at Howth Yacht Club (HYC), yachts gathered from around the country, including some of our lakes.

This was the main “on water” feature event for the Howth Maritime Festival which took place over the weekend. This attracted thousands of people into Howth who enjoyed a maritime and sailing experience which contributed hugely to the success of the festival.

Four races with all podium results delivered the overall event win to John and Suzie Murphy’s Outrajeous at the monday.com ICRA National Championships at Howth today (Sunday 10th September 2023)

In spite of valiant efforts by the race management teams, there was no overcoming the weather that delivered near calm conditions and torrential downpours of rain that only allowed a brief race by one of the six classes.

At the monday.com ICRA National Championships at Howth, clouds cleared to allow a perfect sea breeze to develop with four races completed on all three course areas today (Saturday 9th September 2023).

None of the five divisions contesting their national titles have runaway leaders and much depends on Sunday’s final day and whether weather conditions allow completion of the full programme of races.
